The group gifting app making teacher gifts easy this year

You can spend less, while giving more!

By Rebel Wylie
With Christmas around the corner, it's time to think about the gifts you need to be buying for the important people in your life. Kids, family, friends, teachers and carers. Some of those are easier than others.
Teacher gifts are quite the conundrum. On the one hand, you want to show them how much you appreciate them nurturing your child for the year, on the other, who has spare money at the end of the year to do that appreciation justice?
Group gifting is a great solution, and now there's an app that can make it a whole lot easier.
Group gifts are a great way to spend less while still rewarding the teacher with a gift more substantial than another 'Best Teacher' mug.
But they're not always smooth sailing either, are they? Someone, usually a mum, has to initiate that collection, then hound everyone for the money and the card signing.
Then take into account that there's multiple teachers, coaches and carers to buy for and it can get a little chaotic. The personal admin of mum-lyfe is already overwhelming, let alone adding money collection to the task-list.
New social finance app, PayK can help because with it you manage multiple groups at the same time. It's simple and best of all, it's free.

Sharing bank details over and over again and doing the uncomfortable follow-up with people because they haven't paid you back yet is time-consuming and annoying, PayK can help to automate the whole thing for you. The app allows you to set up multiple groups to do in-app money transfers for anything.
Taking the group-gift situation digital helps take away the awkwardness of collecting money individually from everyone, and the fact that it's free means you shouldn't have too much trouble getting the other class parents to sign up too.
Finally, you can really show your child's teacher how much you truly appreciate them.
